It’s about us standing together as Americans’

In many ways, Joyce Shaffer is the quintessential country singer.

She grew up as the ninth child of a dirt-poor sharecropper, then married young and raised her children amid tremendous hardship.

Nevertheless, Shaffer found joy in the beauty of the rugged Colorado landscape which has been her lifelong home.

During the 1980s, Shaffer enjoyed singing with a band. Now she’s beginning a new work: writing and performing her own songs but, instead of singing about her own heartaches, Shaffer is singing an anthem for American voters.

This August, the 61-year-old grandmother and rancher will perform in Washington, D.C., warning the establishment that tea partiers and other Americans, in fear of what Barack Obama will do, are “Takin’ Back Our Country.”

“Obama is the worst thing that ever happened to this country,” said Shaffer. “And I will say it openly because if I won’t say it openly, I can’t expect anyone else to say it.”

On Youtube, reactions to “Takin’ Back Our Country” range from “Great song Joyce! I was singing right along with you. United We Stand!” all the way down the scale to “Nice song, you stupid white trash retard. Your hatred is showing… please die in a hole, you old bag.”

No matter what people say, Shaffer is upbeat. She sings for everyone who “earned their wrinkles” and strives to raise a new generation that fights for our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
